Yes, that's what I meant. Saving a dog is the best to do. I don't want them to die. But I always loved Goldies. I don't want to be a selfish person but I'd love a puppy to grow in my house and that I'd have puppy memories. Like big accidents, mouthing, naming it, etc. But a dog's life is more important. :\

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

It is ultimately your decision LTB. you have a while to think about it (;
And a dog being euthanized isn't your fault. It is the fault of people who don't spay/neuter and allow their dogs to reproduce. If people weren't so selfish that they want money off of BYB pups, there wouldnt be so many dogs being killed.

And a hard decision it is. I'm sure I won't be a dog breeder. I'd like to help shelter dogs when I become a vet tech.

A puppy mill is where my chihuahua, Noel, came from. Her mother was pregnant with her with they mill was raided and all the dogs were rescued. Sadly it was too late for most of Noel's litter mates as the person running the mill fed her mother and the other dogs under their care a very poor diet, supposedly plain grits. Noel was one of the only puppies in her litter to be born alive, the rest were stillborn.

She has flourished despite her rocky start to life and now is spunky and lively as any dog could be. She is also a little diva. If she doesn't like the food we give her, she just turns her nose up at it and walks away, and she hates dog clothes with a passion. She also lays down with her paws crossed in front of her. Its so cute.

You wanna be a vet tech? :D
That's what I wanna be! Deciding between vet tech & veterinary assistant :D

I want to take my dog to puppy classes to learn the basic sit, stay, come etc. I want to be able to walk my dog through the neighborhood without dragging me all over the place. I've never had a big dog before so I want to be able to handle a big dog on a leash.

Nah, it's fine. I just don't want to see their organs and muscles and stuff.
